Reviews and blog posts that have me adding to my TBR list:

~ Darkness, My Old Friend by Lisa Unger, reviewed by Wendy at Caribousmom

~ Turn of Mind by Alice LaPlante, reviewed by Lesley at Lesley’s Book Nook

Reading challenges:

~ Time for R.I.P. VI! 🙂

Book to movie and/or television news:

~ Showtime is developing Stephen King’s Under the Dome into a TV series.


~ Avis has posted the fourth part of our discussion about All Clear by Connie Willis. I won’t be reviewing it here, but you can read my thoughts in the comment section of her post. Of course, as it’s a read-along discussion, there are spoilers, so don’t read it if you plan to read All Clear. And if you haven’t read it, you definitely should – though read Blackout first, with All Clear handy because you won’t want to wait. 🙂

Other bookish links:

~ The Telegraph: Reading ‘can help reduce stress’

~ For fans of Connie Willis, her short story Firewatch, which relates to her Oxford time travel novels, can be read online.

Non-bookish links of interest:

~ This blogger makes some very good points: Regarding Facebook “Breast Cancer Awareness” Games

    Yay RIP! The only real challenge I will take on this year (besides James’ read your own stuff challenge). I’m a little leery about the TV version of Under the Dome. The TV series for The Stand was pretty good, but they bombed on It. Why can’t he just make a real movie? Too long I suppose.

      Sandy – can you believe Kevin and I just watched The Stand for the first time this year? I liked most of it, but the ending was a bit anti-climactic. And Molly Ringwold stunk.
